"5 The 'two tier' pricing..." General impressions Tip by Eric_Nixon

General impressions, Moscow: 61 reviews and 52 photos

Favorite thing: 5 The 'two tier' pricing system where Russians are charged one price and foreigners another for the same goods \ services is prevalent. If you are really stuck for money try and strike up a conversation with a Russian to buy you tickets for sightseeing \ theatre etc. It works! I did it. Same applies when buying beer! For foreiners beer is $5 per pint, for Russians 30 cents - see what I mean? They screw you when they find out your a foreigner. Russians are very apprachable and its easy to strike up a conversation with them.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
